Del Conte speaks

It's official now- Jim Christian is leaving TCU. Horned Frog athletic director Chris Del Conte released this statement on the matter this afternoon:

"Jim Christian will not be returning as TCU's head men's basketball coach. We appreciate Jim's contributions to TCU and wish him the best. A national search for a new head coach will begin immediately. With our entrance into the Big 12, the momentum on the TCU campus and the great city of Fort Worth, we are very excited about the future of our men's basketball program."

This certainly isn't a big surprise given what we've been hearing over the past 24 hours, but at least now we know the school can move on. With so many coaches in New Orleans right now for the Final Four, I'd expect that many of them are discussing this opening and we should have a clearer picture of who might be realistic candidates within the next few weeks, if not days.
